Event description

Description

Join us at the Whirled Cinema on 15th March for a charity screening of Aki Kaurismäki's funny and compassionate film The Other Side of Hope, in support of the South London Refugee Association.

This is the second in a series of events which will use thought-provoking films to explore the ways cities can welcome and inspire, or swallow up and spit out new arrivals.

The screening will be followed by a discussion of the themes of the film and the work of the charity (speakers tbc).

Tickets include a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink and some light refreshments. For group discounts (6 or more), please contact carolinegloyne@hotmail.com. All net proceeds will go directly to South London Refugee Association.


About the film

The Other Side of Hope (2017) follows the unlikely friendship between a Syrian asylum seeker and an elderly Finnish restaurant owner. Winner of the Berlin Silver Bear for Best Director, it’s a beautiful, timely film from one of the world's leading auteurs.
